    The long goodbye:

    After the rounds of leaving drinks and goodbyes our big adventure nearly tripped up on its big smug face as we were nearly refused check-in for want of a return flight out of India (a requirement we felt better suited to being raised at the visa stage rather than two hours before our flight but hey, where is the fun in …

I hadn't driven a car in eight years and have absolutely no faith in my driving abilities whatsoever, but compared to Sanjay, I was Jeremy ******* Clarkson (without the casual racism).

    ... en suite and apparently wi-fi. Oh, and two balconies, one east facing, one west facing (that's one for sunrise and one for sunset). Did I mention the balconies!? This was quite possibly the coolest room I'd ever stayed in in India. The only other person staying there was an old Italian guy who blasted out Faithless most of the day, which was totally fine by me.
